Compromise can be done. Close the corporate tax loopholes, but at the same time cut the damn regulations on them. The regulations are also part of why US companies relocate overseas, not just to avoid the unions. It is a fact that it is easier to create your own business in Communist China than it is here. Venture capitalism is all but dead in America. Cut the damn spending on the stupid wars also. Damn, almost half the debt is attributed to these far flung wars that really serve no other purpose than to enrich Wall St bankers, whom we borrow from, and the defense contractors, to whom we pay the loan money to.

Tim Pawlenty has officially dropped his bid for the presidency. The field is 99.9% set, unless Sarah Palin just can't bear the idea of Michele Bachmann being in the spotlight.

The fact that Bachmann won Iowa says a lot about the people of Iowa.

Actually the wars have cost aroun 1.3 trillion which is about 10% of or dept. You say the war has enriched Wall Street Bankers and I ask How?

He has only himself to blame. The really sad part is that he really tried hard to reinvent himself as out of the mainstream conservative only to reinvent yourself again. Should have kept it real from the get go...good to see another fraud bite the dust.

He did go out with a bang though:

I think the turning point for him was when he didn't mix it with Romney during the first debate. He came off looking like a wimp which reinforced the nice guy perception.

Even if Palin gets in at this point, it's a three way race between Perry, Romney and Bachmann. My guess is either Jon Huntsman or Newt Gingrich will be the next casualties.

He did look like a little bitch against Romney.

Newt has a 2 inch gash on his neck...I really don't know how/why he is still standing. The will to be in the spotlight and sell his book is strong in him.
